Who gave Hassan Ayariga license to lift crude in Ghana?

A member of the NPP’s Communication team, Hopeson Adorye, has claimed on Oman FM that he is reliably informed that the current NDC government has awarded the 2012 presidential candidate of the People’s National Convention, Mr. Hassan Ayariga, a valid license to lift crude in the country.

Though Mr. Adorye made it clear that he has no qualms provided Mr. Ayariga has the requisite skill to lift crude oil and generate revenue for the nation, he strongly posited that the PNC's 2012 flagbearer had exhibited he is “blockheaded” to handle any business.

“If we are to allow Hassan Ayariga lift crude oil in this country, we are doomed as a nation. There is surely going to be gas shortage if we are to sit down and allow him handle such a business. Who gave blockheaded Hassan Ayariga the license to lift crude oil in Ghana?” he asked.

Personally responding to the question asked, Mr. Adorye pinpointed that, as a result of the “notorious” biding Hassan Ayariga carried out for the government during the 2012 general elections, he was promised to be rewarded with a juicy package as soon as they retained power.

Making references to notable events that transpired during the 2012 presidential date which was organized by the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA), Hopeson noted that it was a deliberate plan by Mr. Ayariga to “heckle” and “provoke” Nana Akufo-Addo during the event.
